Wanda Gayle Thompson
I was set apart for this journey not long ago, August, 10 1964, as Wanda Gayle Steele, to be exact. I was
the product of two extraordinary people, Harvie and Rosietter (Lola Mae) Steele. They trained me in the
town of Bremond in an area better known as the Bottom, to be resilient, courageous, headstrong, and at
times a little bit spicy. Did I mention that in the tradition of my mother, I had a contagious, sociable and
lively personality that I carried with much grace and elegance. My path has always been to work hard for
the things that you desire in life and to trust in the Lord.
My relationship with the Lord was established at Macedonia Baptist Church. It was a requirement to
serve the Most High God. Moreover, I was educated that regardless of what I was going to through my
God always sits high and looks low. He never left me alone. The Lord told me to cast all my cares on him
because He cares for me. I continued my travel with the Lord at Old Elem Baptist Church in Hearne, Tx.
He wrote these words in my soul; Although I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no
evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me. You prepared a table before me in the
presence of mine enemies, you anointed my head with oil, my cup runs over. Surely, surely goodness and
mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I Will dwell in the house of the Lord forever!
Now this page lead to the lifetime partnership and friendship between Ronnie Thompson and I. We met
in 1977 and God made our union everlasting on November 28, 1984. Our marriage was painted on the
backdrop of love, support, endurance and faith. I appreciated our existence, us sharing life and you being
beside me when I took my finishing breath. We created a little legacy with our girls Ashley and Autumn
Thompson. It was elevated to four adoring yet active grandchildren, Armiyah, Aurianah, Rodney Jr. and
Z’Niyah, I will cheer all of you on from above.
You see right now mama and I are dancing around Heaven. Furthermore, I leave to tell my story my loving
and devoted husband Ronnie of 36 years, our beautiful daughters, and grandchildren. You know I cannot
forget about the man that started this, my daddy, Harvie Lee Steele. To my sisters Shirley Steele, Sylvia
(Clarence) Holder, Shelia Brown (Ken Pogue), Pamela Steele, Kathy (Rayford) Jones, and Angie Edwards
dance a little longer for me. My father-in-law Louis Thompson who has been nothing but wonder, my
sisters-in-law Theresa (Roosevelt) Sawyer, Catherine (Fred) Smith and Robertha Palmer, all from Florida,
thank you for making me a part of the family. To my nephews Brandon, Rayford Jr., Harvie, Jarvis, and
Karmello and nieces Sekina, Jaime, Brooke, Myriah and Kayla, you all please keep the good times rolling.
And to my remaining 12 great nieces and nephew I enjoyed the time spent with you all as well. I would
also like to say to my special friends Sandra Austin-Howard, Brenda Cotton, Shantina Womack and Patrice
Moore that I beyond grateful for your support and all for always been there. Aunties Betty Faye, Maple,
Faye, Alice, Lou, and Uncles David Lee and Johnny filled my life with so much joy. Also, to my other family
and dear friends I love you all.
